2. Elrow @ Glastonbury

Elrow has firmly cemented its place as one of the big hitters over the last 3 years, from Barcelona to Ibiza! It’s definitely the place to be for a fun-filled party with confetti, fireworks, inflatables and great tunes and DJs all night long. This year Elrow made their Glastonbury debut and was a major festival highlight with the likes of Eats Everything, Fatboy Slim, Kolsch, Skream all bringing the party atmosphere to the UK’s biggest and best festival!

Glasgow Fashion Designers You Should Know | Culture Trip

Forty Clothing were delighted to recently feature in an article on Culture Trip, one of the world’s fastest growing online media outlets. The website itself has around 7,000,000 monthly visitors so when we read the article we were very privileged to be part of it. The article titled “Glasgow Fashion  Designers You Should Know”  featured Forty, alongside some other outstanding designers from our hometown of Glasgow. You can read Forty’s feature from Culture Trip below, and read the full article here. Thanks for all your support.

Forty Clothing, a hip street-style brand, is all the rage these days. It’s also the reason why style stunners are sauntering about Glasgow and Scotland with a loveable monster logo imprinted on their t-shirts! This trendy logo, the reason for the brand, is actually a drawing by the 3-year-old son of company founder and renowned Scottish DJ Harry Miller. Miller collaborated with a graphic design friend and alas, the rest is history. Forty instantly garnered respect and is popular with DJs and notables in the clubbing scene. The flagship concept store is too cool for words.”

12 of the Best Pictures from the Ibiza Opening Parties

We’re now into June and the Ibiza summer season is well and truly underway.  So far we’ve seen the prestigious Dalt Vila host another famous IMS party, we’ve danced with Sven Vath at Cocoon for the 18th season and perhaps one of the biggest talking points this summer has been the opening of  Hï Ibiza – the islands latest superclub in the heart of Playa D’en Bossa (formerly Space Ibiza).

Forty Clothing are excited to be involved in another season on the island. This year we’ve again partnered with Carl Cox & Game Over, and we can’t wait for Carl Cox Opening Party in Privilege Ibiza this July, where our very own Harry will be gracing the decks in the World’s biggest club. (Remember to check out our t-shirt range for your trip to the island)

We’ve shared with you some of our favourite moments from the Ibiza Opening Parties so far. Enjoy and we’ll see you soon…
